Another piece which links the name of Adair and Blair is found on a notation on an 1834 book supposed to have been written by Rev. J. Goldsmith which my g-g-grandfather brought with him to South Australia.
"Goldsmith (Rev. J.) one of the many pseudonyms adopted by sir Richard Phillips, in a series of school books.Some other of his false names were the Rev. David Blair, James Adair, Rev. C. Clarke, etc., with noted French names for educational French books."
